Monster Mom Loan Payment and Upcoming mini-Vacation

I am not being super aggressive right now to save a little bit of money. DH and I have decided to take a mini-vacation get away the week of the 29th anniversary of our first date. We are going to the waterfront for two nights. It's not an airbnb, but is something similar and is a little cottage with 5 stars. It has its own beach, dock, row boats, kayaks, an acre of private land, and a barbecue area. Because it is the off season it is less expensive than it would be during the summer.

We haven't had a vacation in 7 or 8 years and I am just really needing to get away from everything right now and have some time alone with my husband without having to worry about everyone else's garbage. Most of the time I wouldn't even consider it while we are paying off debt, but I am just really worn down. I'd like a couple days with meals out, no cooking, no cleaning, no being a mom or a daughter, just being a couple.

I think we might go again on our wedding anniversary in March if we like it. It will be our 25th. I had always hoped to go on a cruise for it, but I won't do that until we are out of debt and have a 3 month EF. It will fall on a Wednesday, so we could drive down on Wednesday and stay through Friday morning.

So we might not be out of debt for an extra month, but I think my mental health is a little more important right now. And yes, I am justifying, but I don't care.

    Do it. Mental health is sometimes more important than getting out of debt 1 month earlier!!!
